bipartisan vote of 89-8, a bill that avoided tax increases for 99% of americans and extended emergency unemployment benefits for another year and protected us from the fiscal cliff. when it comes to legislating, the senate actually has a pretty strong bipartisan record. how did those senate bills do on the house side? well, the house couldn't pass its own highway bill. congress has been doing highway bills since the eisenhower years. this isn't rocket science. the house couldn't do one. the best the house of representatives could do was to pass a short-term extension that allowed some of their members to get to conference on the senate bill. but they took no bill into conference because they couldn't pass one. even then they delayed the conference negotiations and they cost the united states of america an entire summer construction season for highway construction, putting thousands of jobs in jeopardy before they finally came around and passed an amended version of the senate bipartisan highway bill. so their record on the highway bill is nothing to be proud of. the house also couldn't

work legislation and low taxes have built taxes into a juggernaut. when governor rick perry was running for president he could claim, rightly, that his they created more than one-third of all of the jobs created in the entire country since the recovery began in 2009. amazing. not new york. not connecticut. texas. the lone star state unemployment rate of 6% handily beats up the nation. then there is louisiana, virginia. five and a half percent. oklahoma, five. new yorkers, pardon me, over 8%. the jersey, nine and a half percent. these metrics matter. the south is ticking new york's but the reid is a culture difference? hello, yes. thank goodness. i thought that is what liberals celebrated, diversity. i guess i probably shouldn't get so upset. after all, he has had this problem. the 40 year-old congressman was censured by the house two years ago after facing charges of 17 years of unpaid taxes on property in the dominican republic and more than 500,000 in undisclosed public assets. crazy. he also was investigated for raising millions from companies with business before the committ

francisco voters passed a tax-change measure. and the mayoral spokesperson in a later article indicated there likely could be more money from this new local tax measure that replaced an outdated one. to the extent that the office of disability, department of aging and adult services and mod can monitor the income from this new tax, i'm going to suggest that some of that extra money could be devoted to restoring some level of the cutbacks already made locally. but statewide is the larger issue. that is where the major changes have come. so i also wanted to alert you to a program called "a california budget for all of us." it's convening groups include well-known groups like the western center on law and poverty, health access, the california partnership, and the california immigrant policy center. the mantra is "restore, rebuild and reinvest." so this advocacy will be taken up by various groups including the california alliance of retired americans. there are four polices that are coming from this california budget for all of us. four polices for the coming california budget cycle. one,
